Loving those colours, this will be my Lucy Treat this winter I think. It looks so snuggly too, just what you want in a blanket.

I love the idea of a Christmas blanket and I don't personally use white at Christmas. I think I may do this one!! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


Oooh Christmas blanket what a fab project using the senses of smell to define the colour scheme. So clever.

Annie Brodrick

A Beautiful project to look forward to come Autumn my most favorite season of the year. Thank you Lucy!


Still thinking about this one. It reminds me of a Scandinavan sweater. Prefer jewels tone for Christmas but the idea of a square is very good. Liked the Meadow Blanket, also did a baby blanket in the meadow pattern with Flutterby yarn.


Jewel tones are my fav! This looks do fun too though and I love the idea of a giant square.


Loving the new blanket so different from any of your others. I can’t wait to get started.
Thanks for all the hard work you put in, to giving me lots of enjoyment with all your crochet project. You are amazingly generous.


The Yuletide blanket is really beautiful.
No problem at all with you mentioning Christmas things now, it's a reminder I need to get my act together if I'm to make all the gifts for family this year!


Hello, Lucy,
This is so beautiful! I will probably never make a yuletide blanket, since it's in the beginning of summer here in Brazil. But I still love to see such lovely inspiration pictures now, in our autumn... ;)
Now I feel like finishing the current blanket I am making (also inspired by your designs) to make a "big square blanket", too!
Thank you for sharing this!


I love the idea of a Christmas blanket. I’m in

So beautiful, thank you so very much for sharing your creativeness!


I absolutely LOVE Christmas and this blanket! I'm with you in that I love bright colors for Christmas and have often tried to figure out a Christmas blanket also, but never managed to get a good vibe from using brights.. I LOVE LOVE these colors and love the fact that you took them from nature and foods, 2 of my favorite things! I can't wait to see your progress AND for this to come out!

I can't believe how Christmasy it is without a bit of red & all that blue-green! It's stunning & I love it!

Charlotte Pountney

It's lovely...the way this year is racing away, we are almost a third of the way round to Christmas. I need to start NOW!


Hi Lucy Loving the idea of a Yuletide blanket! And the natural color choice is just up my alley. I have not done a square blanket/throw in years, so it will be something old, new again. I can see a matching pillow as well, so looking forward to it. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and glimpses of the design process. Take care, hugs MO

Love that the greens echo the eucalypts and yes that the reds are deep and luscious,feels warm and snuggally

Archana Airody

Looks exciting! Can't wait. And long overdue. These bright colours will brighten any Christmas xx

Rose Hester

I really like that blanket. Love the colors! I just had a thought making a basket like the one showing in the picture with the same colors. I would like to make the basket, put the yuletide throw in it for a Christmas gift. Can you do a pattern for it? So, when is the earliest we can get the yarn?

Coastal Ripples

I’m definitely sold on this one Lucy. Gorgeous colours and patterns. Nice to have something to look forward to making in the autumn. B x

Noelle Sweeney

So inspiring! I love the story behind the blankets it's always so interesting. thank you Lucy, for sharing your talent with us!

Kate Evans

Just lovely . . . and the use of nature to inform your colour palette is so VERY 'on-brand' for you. 🙂💖

I LOVE Jewel Colors and would love one day to see you design a blanket in them. Jewel colors make me so happy! This blanket is lovely too. I am not really a Christmas girl, but find myself looking forward this year in hope that by then all of this Covid mess will have passed away.

Alice Le Mero

Absolutely love the cosy Christmas colours, I cant wait for this, I love a soothing repeating pattern in a big square!! Cant wait!! It's also really helpful to read a little of your process with designing, I've recently started designing and I'm still trying to learn how really, it definately is exciting seeing a pattern you've come up with start to develop!


Love it, Lucy! Stunning colors and Stylecraft is my absolute favorite yarn. Please keep posting your progress. I’ll be ready in September to start this beautiful blanket. Thank you so much!

Linda from Boston

Looks very interesting. I’m on the fence so far. I’m glad it’s not individual squares cuz I really don’t enjoy all that starting and stopping and weaving ends in and sewing the squares together. I’m keeping an open mind!!
